The term old school
is used to reference historical habits or music.
I started playing music in 1964 at Notre Dame high school with
Looking Glass and other bands. The photos are bad, but we played
at many college Frat/Sorority parties from San Diego to Stanford
and many schools in between. We played zillions of HS dances.
Oh, I played guitar then, but I envied the bass player Jan Yarbrough.
Pete Silverberg (lead guitar) was the only band member to really
stay on as a real musician and still sells recordings!
Thanks to the
herculean effort of Gabe Kaprelian (the drummer)
we re-united for a meal in 2012. No plans yet to play, but...
Jan Yarbrough, Gabe Kaprelian,
Mark Mayo, Pete Siverberg and John Bouchard
I quit music to devote
full efforts to USC and research around 1971.
A high school student of mine in 1980 literally made me start
Below is a student/teacher talent show photo and a band paying
a lunch concert at South Gate HS. I play today because of that
The drummer was Jim Woloshun - a force in my life. Jim
now plays in the sky.
The school band the following week was called SLAYER - yes, that
The amp was an Ampeg 360
- that was OLD SCHOOL
